In January 2008, Taha was purportedly shot three times by a masked man while talking on a cell phone near his car. Taha was subsequently hospitalized and lost a lot of blood, but was apparently able to leave the hospital later that same night. It has been rumored[according to whom?] that the incident was part of a concerted marketing effort targeted at lending seeming criminal authenticity to European Gangsta rap.
